What if the perfect match is a perfect surprise?
Honor Holland has just been unceremoniously rejected by her lifelong crush. And now—a mere three weeks later—Mr. Perfect is engaged to her best friend. But resilient, reliable Honor is going to pick herself up, dust herself off and get back out there or she would if dating in Manningsport, New York, population 715, wasn't easier said than done.
Charming, handsome British professor Tom Barlow just wants to do right by his unofficial stepson, Charlie, but his visa is about to expire. Now Tom must either get a green card or leave the States—and leave Charlie behind.
In a moment of impulsiveness, Honor agrees to help Tom with a marriage of convenience—and make her ex jealous in the process. But juggling a fiancé, hiding out from her former best friend and managing her job at the family vineyard isn't easy. And as sparks start to fly between Honor and Tom, they might discover that their pretend relationship is far too perfect to be anything but true love .
I don't really like the story at the beginning, as I really dislike Dana. And Brogan is not very likeable too. It's not about the writing. I would say this is just not the kind of story that will warm my heart. Although I dislike Dana and Brogan, but I like Honor. I like the way how she handles the whole betrayal and friendship thing with Dana. And Tom is another likeable character. And he's hot! He is really kind to Charlie. I think it's very hard to find this kind of guy, who can be so patient, put so much effort on a child who can say has no relation to him, in these days. It broke my heart when Charlie did not return his love. It also broke my heart when Tom pushed Honor away. I couldn't hold back my tears. The event happened at the end was rather unexpected. But it touches my heart so much. Absolutely love the ending. Absolutely love both Honor and Tom.
I'm looking forward reading the next book in this series. I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
